VIDEO: Man tasered by police officers after stabbing a man in the chest

Shocking footage has been released of a man being tasered by police officers after he stabbed another man in the chest outside a bank in Surbiton.

Binh Nguyen, 39, was jailed for 20 months for chasing a 25-year-old man down Victoria Road and stabbing him in the chest just before midnight on Thursday, March 17. The CCTV footage shows Nguyen, wearing a red jacket, being approached by police officers outside HSBC as he holds a long knife in his right hand. Nguyen is then tasered after he begins to wave the knife towards the officers.

Police had first been called after reports of a “serious incident” and were only told on the way that a man had been stabbed. When they arrived they found Nguyen standing next to two people who were seemingly oblivious to the stabbing. A first officer tried to taser Nguyen when he failed to put down the knife, but the connection failed and a second officer had to fire his taser before he fell to the floor, a police spokesman said. Nguyen, of no fixed address, was arrested and taken to Kingston police station. He was charged with causing grievous bodily harm and possession of a bladed article. He was jailed for 20 months after pleading guilty to both charges at Kingston Crown Court on Friday.
